Heirloom Bean Varieties

Southall field peas

One of our favorite milestones of the late summer at Southall is the bean harvest.

As the days shorten and the season starts to turn, it’s a time to think back to native populations who grew these staples for centuries before us in this area, and the ways the cultural and culinary traditions have passed down through the years. Take a minute to hear more from Chef Tyler Brown on the heirloom varieties grown at Southall, and the unique way we process them for use and storage.
